Dear SSIS Parents,
At Saigon South International School we believe that each individual in our community can benefit from honest, helpful, and supportive feedback from those most affected by his or her work. We often use surveys as the means to obtain this feedback. For example, the climate survey is a chance for parents and teachers to share their perception of the school with the school leadership. Teachers take part in administrator surveys on the head of school, the principals, and other members of the administrative team to help us do our jobs better.
This month we will ask students to do the same with education surveys. Students in Grades 3-12 will give their perspective on their experience in the classroom setting through anonymous surveys, telling their teachers how they are doing in supporting the SSIS Core Values: Academic Excellence, a Sense of Self, Dedicated Service, Balance in Life, and Respect for All. A sample copy of the survey questions were emailed to all Gr 3-12 parents this morning.
The purpose of this survey is to understand how students feel we are doing in delivering a holistic education at SSIS, to praise what is going well, and to offer suggestions for improvement.
We are very confident that our students can provide us with important insights. The results of these surveys will be shared with the classroom teacher and the school administration to make our students’ educational experiences even more valuable.
Mark Iver Sylte
Head of School
